In an atmosphere when the capitalists solutions are failing globally. Crowds of people around Wall Street and Greece disown the suppression of prevailing models of governance. Not excluding the masses in Pakistan hardly making their both ends meet due to rotten rule culminating in periodic inflation, lack of justice, collapsing economy and rising slavery I visited an exhibition organized by a global Islamic group Hizb-ut-Tahrir under the title “The Real Change is Caliphate”.
The difference I witnessed was that it was not a mere array of slogans and false pledges but the group has prepared comprehensive structures for governance and detailed solutions to global and local contemporary problems. The preparation and political awareness can be perceived by the fact that there were separate stalls for economic, ruling, judicial, education, social systems and foreign policy. Every stall was equipped with intellectuals who were presenting solutions with respective topics and answering to miscellaneous questions with the power of concepts and not like our TV talk shows and politicians who play blame games and beat about the bush or concerts.
Yesterday the alternate system has been presented. I a nutshell when people are waiting for change these solutions should be brought into lime-light and masses should be akin with the real change so that we are not fooled again for years and decades. A glimpse of talks was that in Caliphate no indirect taxes will be imposed on individuals, and there will be no taxes on earnings rather savings only. Unlike capitalist system where giant capitalist get bails and refrain from paying taxes because of their legislative powers, funds of the Caliphate like Alms, Kharaj, Ushur, etc will be collected with respect to Islamic rulings and there will be no leniency with rich and influential.
As the law isn’t in hands of majority but based on fixed ruling of Quran and Sunnah, it will not be inflicted by desires of parliament and no one can change it for dirty interests like leniency in agricultural taxes towards from feudal in Pakistan. Fuels and energy resources such as petrol, coal, etc will be provided at cost price and not nationalized or privatized with reference to a Hadith. Therefore, government can’t impose heavy taxes on them and private companies can’t gain unmatched prophet culminating to lowing prices of many goods that use fuel directly or indirectly. As the law is strictly defined no one is above law and it can’t be altered howsoever.
Therefore, in Caliphate no NRO can be passed and support to US for killing Muslims will be legitimized as these issues are clearly illustrated in Islam. President of Pakistan can’t be tried in court. Similarly, Italian PM was given pardon even he breached the law and royal families is Britain still posses more rights than normal individuals as the system of democracy is creation of human mind, plight of Dr. Afia with 86 years of jail is the most bitter example of it. Such things aren’t possible in Caliphate as law is defined for it. No one can be imprisoned without evidence and law is cheap and at the door steps of individual. Moreover a Constitution with 186 articles has been already prepared with detailed evidences for Islamic legislative sources and state structures are comprehensively designed showing that the party is totally prepared for a real change. After all it was a good experience.
